Could This Be The World's Funniest Fart?

What makes the funniest fart? Is there a perfect formula? 

Here at Beano, we really wanted find out, so we put it to the test!

We invited top science-type person Dr Helen Pilcher to come and help us work out what makes flatulence funny and, with assistance from voiceover f-artist Grant Leat (plus a team of Beano boffins) we studied recordings of 176 different farting noises, from low to high pitch, short to long, dry to wet and from loud to squeaking. What a job, eh?

And what were the conclusions? Well, according to science, the funniest fart is long, loud and ever so slightly wet! Sounds pretty gross!

But if you want to decide the funniest fart for yourself, then just watch the video (and check out the formula for funny farts below!).
